Solid book.

It covers all the major aspects if Cassandra's high availability quite well, without:
* going through basic, introductory stuff
* covering programming aspects in detail

What is more important -> it's written in a VERY clear way & truly approachable. Some of the hints are quite well known (if you're interested in the topic), but some are true gems (I've learned a lot about how tombstones are handled, chapter about data modeling was very useful as well) & some are just very rare

Disclaimer: I've got this book for review from publisher, but it was in my reading queue anyway...

Very well written and well structured book about Cassandra. Of course book is not for the entry level of Cassandra, but it's a must read book for Cassandra advance level. This book well explained Cassandra's Data Distribution, Replication and data modelling for high availability. Also chapter 6 introduce data stay java native client for working with Cassandra, which can be very useful for Cassandra beginners.

An excellent high-level view, providing direction and guidance for relative newcomers to Cassandra. My background is 10+ years with relation Db's, covering SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase, cubes, data marts, etc., and this pointed out the mistakes that can be made by someone with a relational Db background. It's an easy read, well-written and high-level, with enough code to make the point, but not so much that reading becomes drudgery.

Very solid introduction to Cassandra database and no-SQL itself.
The book contains many useful examples of how to model for high performance and availability, which is great!
I would totally recommend this book to person who just started working with Cassandra, and those who want to increase performance of an existing cluster. it's written in a really clear way. Author did a great job explaining those complex concepts in a simple and clear language.
